    Now this is interesting, Move on has come out and said this, reported in the highly reliable and esteemed Washington Times.. so that has to make it correct and accurate.. can their be common ground between Move on and the Wrighties... ????

    Did anyone hear him on the Today show Friday admitting that Boy King told him that he gave the OK to release Plame's identity to the press?

    If Congress is listening, and they get him to testify, that qualifies as a bombshell. Too late, but validation, nonetheless.

    The thud you heard? That was Fitzgerald hurling his coffee mug against the wall in disgust.

    Move On is desperate for attention and credibility, more people in America listen to me than they do Move On.

    Why single out McClellan, because he wrote a tell-all book about the White House propaganda and lies in which he may have helped covered-up versus neo con authors from the White House who still continue to sprout lies.

    Let's see if he donates the money. :rofl: You've got to love people who chastize Richard Clarke for not sticking to his principles and then running to write a book for money, who then don't stick to their principles, and go write a book for money.

    This is funny since both move on and the publisher of the book are funded by Soros...

    Holy sh!te, I'd actually agree with MoveOn on this one.

    I actually have a legitimate question for you (so we can drop the insults for a post or two).

    If Bush (or any president) has the executive authority to declassify any document or person at any time, then what exactly would congress do?

    Assuming it's true (and giving the motivations of the source in this thing - $$, it's far from proven fact at this point), what is the crime?

    Certainly, if true, you could argue it a sh!tty use of executive authority, but besides possible censure, what would congress get involved for?

    It is even funnier because the Wright Wing times picked it up.. do you have anything reliable, besides a wright wing blog, that can link Soros to this Public Affairs Publishing House?? He did get 6 books he wrote published by them, but cannot find any other link..

    Maybe you should look a little harder? He got six books published by them...but he paid for them. It's a vanity press. So why would they suddenly pay Scott? Hmmm?

    Interesting idea, but as you have nothing to back up what you say.. then it means absolutely nothing..

    BTW he has now agreed to donate a portion to injured vets..

    I'm glad of that......

    Of course he picked it up from a conservative blog, it's not something you'd find over at kos or stinkprogress. I've read the same thing, didn't link to it because it primarily is mostly from political commontary site, as you say. Not conclusive, but it's not "out of thin air" either. There is pertty good documentation on it at a glance.

    Here is the NEWSBUSTERS post on it ***

    *** - Full disclosure (your the we usually get from the left), Newsbusters is a right-leaning blog site. It's right-leaning, but it's not nearly as bad as some I've seen. Generally, they do a pretty good job documenting inaccuracies in the media as they see them.
